Hi i'm having problems with my monitor. It's green. When I tried fixing the color on the monitor it said that the green was "fixed" I couldn't lower or raise the bar, I just couldn't touch it. I checked to see if it was the computer or the monitor by switching monitors with another computer and it was the monitor. It says it's a ViewSonic monitor, but other than that I don't know what it's called. Can someone please help me?

See if you can't find an option for "restore factory defaults" or something to that effect. Let us know what you find out. :thumbsup:

Carefully check the cabling and connections for the monitor to ensure that it's not a connection issue - if that's not it, then it's likely that your monitor needs to be replaced.

Look for a Degauss button on the monitor or in the monitors in screen menu. I know green shows when it's been affected by magnetism.

I am gonna give this a go here. I am a TV guy. I believe that your cable as long as it is not a DVI cable seperates the colors of light and also the horizontal and vertical. Each pin represents one of these and I think there are a few other things. The colors of light are red, blue and green. If you are seeing a picture and it is green then the monitor is not receiving the other colors. I would take the monitor and connect it to a different PC to verify it is not a driver or setting in the current PC. If it does not function it would be defected.

Also check for a bent pin in the cord end. That just happened to a person on another forum

This happens frequently at work where we use KVM switches on the workbench. The video connector pins get bent or pushed back into the cord and don't make contact - and the strange colors are the result.
